Youth & Education

We believe investing in youth is not only the right thing to do, but it is also the best way to ensure a strong economy and community.  
Our programs and partnerships in this area focus on kindergarten readiness, reading at grade level by the end of third grade
and high school completion.

Financial Stability

We believe in supporting initiatives that decrease the need for future social services.  
We support programs and partnerships that focus on a pathway from poverty to self-sufficiency as well as disaster response and recovery.

Community Engagement

We believe strong communities are characterized by a high level of civic participation.
Our programs and partnerships focus on increasing volunteerism, collaboration across sectors, creating a pipeline of
civic leaders and business engagement with the community.

Nonprofit Excellence

We believe the nonprofit sector plays a vital role in creating and maintaining a resilient community and that donors’ dollars should
be used to fund effective and efficient programs that show results.  Our programs and partnerships coordinate with
more than 70 local nonprofits, funding collective impact activities, evaluation of outcomes and data-based reports for donors.
